And for this new Photo of the Week, one of my favourites photos, Commuting:

People commuting from work to home... and under the rain.

This photo was taken during Autumn 2014, on a rainy afternoon. The idea with this photo is to reflect the attitude of the people commuting usually from work to home, they are here physically but are in their own mind, thinking about their own business. The blur of the people shows this both “here but not really here” attitude.

Commuting was taken in a quite long exposure, almost 1 second, for a street photo. It helped creating the people’s blur… and also reduce the ISO and raise the quality, 2 birds with 1 stone! Of course a tripod was mandatory here. I wish I had an umbrella too, my poor Canon 6D was totally wet. At least I now know that the weatherproofing works great.

This photo has been processed in black and white with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, with an accent given on the black in order to reflect the global mood of the scene.

Five black knights

I crossed this group of black dressed people next to Piata Unirii in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Just after, having the sidewalk free, they spread in line, and walked like if they were in a movie. I immediately thought of the Nazguls, the infamous black knights (well… kings actually… nevermind) from The Lord of the Rings 😀

This photo has been processed with one of my favorite softwares ever, Google’s Nik Collection Silver Efex Pro, with of course my standard Lightroom workflow.

She was sitting on a bench, reading an economy book, yes, university has begun :) Then I see her glasses and observe that Cluj-Napoca’s St Michael cathedral is reflecting in it. I got my shot of the day :) I’m quite happy of the resolution of the Canon 6D with the 24-70 lens, this picture being a 100% crop of the original file.

An old man texting.

An old man texting… whomever it could be. Much people said it’s a shame we don’t see his feet. In the contrary, with his trousers high on the waist, he looks like a trunk, as if this man was an old tree in the middle of the fair. The time it took for him to write his message reminds me of that, too 🙂
